A Beloved Restaurant Now Makes A Painful Closure in Texas

A beloved restaurant now makes a painful closure in Texas after two years in business, leaving only a handful of locations left.

Federales in Dallas, Texas announced on social media that it will be shuttering permanently after only two years in business.

The chain uploaded a cryptic post on its website thanking its loyal diners for their service.

“It’s with bittersweet emotions that we announce that Federales will be closing its doors,” the post read.

“After two wonderful years, we have made the difficult decision to cease our operations effective immediately.

We are immensely grateful for we have received from our guests, our dedicated staff and the Deep Ellum community.

Thank you for being part of our journey.”

But it’s not all bad news for diners who want their Federales fix.

The beloved chain are still alive in three locations in Chicago and Denver.

An additional location is listed as “coming soon” to Nashville on their website.

As mom-and-pop eateries have struggled to stay afloat, many chain restaurants have also been on the chopping block this year.

Many restaurants have closed for several reasons such as underperformance, financial strain, and changes in consumer habits.

In 2024 so far, Red Lobster, Tijuana Flats, Pizza Hut, TGI Friday’s, and several other restaurant chains have closed several locations.

Mitchell Olsen, a marketing professor specializing in retail at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana, shared some of the reasons why so many restaurants have had to close their doors.

With food prices on the rise, Olsen told The U.S. Sun that inflated prices have heavily impacted casual restaurants.

“On one hand, it’s more expensive to operate restaurants due to higher wages and food costs,” he said.

“On the other hand, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to pass those higher operating expenses on to diners with ever-increasing menu prices.”

An unexpected restaurant now abruptly closes 7 locations in one state after revealing plans to shutter a total of 36.

TGI Fridays is closing a total of seven restaurants in one state as part of the company’s ongoing growth strategy.

This comes after the chain abruptly closed 36 locations across 12 states in at the beginning of the year, per The-Sun.

The restaurant chain will pull the plug on seven locations across the state of New Jersey in the coming weeks.

Today, Fridays will welcome in famished diners at its location in Brick for the final time.

“As we continue along our path of transformation to revitalize the Fridays brand and implement a long-term growth strategy, we see a bright future for TGI Fridays,” said Weldon Spangler, CEO of TGI Fridays earlier this week.

“We are at the helm of a pivotal moment that will allow us to explore boundless advancement, expansion, and innovation to keep delivering ‘That Fridays Feeling’ that our fans know and love.”

Before the closures, TGI Fridays had about 270 US locations, according to the company’s website.

“As part of the store closures, TGI Fridays is offering more than 1,000 transfer opportunities, which represents over 80% of total impacted employees,” the company previously said in a statement.

“Our top priority has always been delivering a superior experience for each and every TGI Fridays guest, and we’ve identified opportunities to optimize and streamline our operations to ensure we are best positioned to meet – and exceed – on that brand promise,” said Ray Risley, US president and chief operating officer, in the release.

Eight other locations were sold to former CEO Ray Blanchette, a longtime stakeholder who will acquire the previously corporate-owned restaurants.

The sale comes as major changes have been made to the brand’s leadership, including the news of Weldon Spangler being made CEO.

“As we continue along our path of transformation to revitalize the Fridays brand and implement a long-term growth strategy, we see a bright future for TGI Fridays,” said Spangler in a statement.
